HYC Virtual Event Live Streamed!
The 2020 Hyannis Yacht Club Commissioning Ceremony was held virtually and streamed to club members all over the country who couldn’t attend due to COVID-19 restrictions. We were proud to provide services for this first ever virtual event for the club!
From William Abbott, Commodore:
“I needed to put together a new concept for sharing the commissioning of Hyannis Yacht Club with its members. This has been a yearly tradition for decades, with the close to 600 members in attendance celebrating the occasion. Due to the COVID Virus, there could be no members present this year.
I imagined a combination of drone photography, live transmission of the ceremony via video, some presentations, singing, some still photography and capturing the images of the past Club Commodores over the last 40 years.
I asked a fellow member who had done drone work, and he just rolled his eyed and said, “No way”.
I had seen some work that Tom Chartrand had done for another organization we belonged to and decided to give him a call. We spoke for awhile and Tom eagerly said, “I can do that for you!”
Tom arrived on site the next day and started drone work, capturing video of the Clubhouse and grounds to build the base of his work. I asked him could he also include in the presentation the installation of new pilings and docks, since that work was currently underway. His response, “Yes, I can do that.”
As we worked together, Tom suggested many new ideas for expanding my initial thoughts. He was creative, responsive, imaginative and very professional. Within 5 days, Tom produced a multimedia production that was broadcast over You-tube to hundreds of our members, across the United States. This was a first! Many had never attended the Commissioning due to living out of state.
I was extremely impressed with Tom’s breadth of knowledge in this field. He was so easy to work with and receptive to pushing the envelope to try new things.
His Company is a resource that I will definitely use again and will recommend him to anyone looking for excellent multi-media production expertise.”
